loose fork lug, LT 271?

Recommended Posts

I picked up a 06 SSS fork with a loose brake side lug. I didnt notice the slop untill was pulling them down to change the seals. The grub screw came out relatively easly (once I removed the peens) The lower tube easily spun right out of the lug and did no damage to either thread.

So i'm wondering if judicious amount of 271 will fix the problem and keep them from comming loose again. I can only assume from the amount of movement that the forks were run this way for some amount of time.

I would worry if they have been loose a while the threads maybe loose now? I would use the strongest thread lock you can get and check it often
